Girl With the Skull Earring by CharmyRaven Girl With the Skull Earring by CharmyRaven
Sigh. Unfortunately the skull earring didn't show up as much as I'd have liked but oh well. This is my entry for the Stylenoir Monarchy Contest. I particularly thought of the Noir conventions so that became my main focus. I considered giving her some fancier attire, more typical of a monarchy, but I didn't really want that to distract from the skull earring that was supposed to be the focus of this pic.

To stock artists out there, I reckon stock with venetian blind lighting would make fantastic reference ;) Just in case you are hunting for ideas ;)

Maybe I'll submit another entry :)

So, this is my first graphite piece since This time I used Bristol paper which is much smoother than the rough sketch paper I was using before. Still, the 8B pencil was very sticky to use and I had to force it across my page, which resulted in some terrible pencil strokes. I was using a Staedler 8B pencil... Comparing them to the Derwent one I found the Derwent one easier to apply. Any thoughts?

Constructive criticism wanted! I feel the window may be out of proportion and/or perspective. Anything else you can think of is also free game.
